The name of Joanna (Goldie Hawn)'s luxury yacht in the movie was the "SS Immaculata". The boat was portrayed by the vessel "Attessa" and was also used for the film Indecent Proposal (1993). DVD sleeve notes have said "the 130th Stayton yacht, bedecked in crystal chandeliers and velvet cheetah upholstery, was docked in Fort Bragg's Noyo Harbor". The vessel had a Kong & Halvorsen hull from 1984, was called "Yecats" at the time Overboard (1987) was filmed, was renamed "Huntress" at some time, had a small helipad on the aft deck, and was later lengthened to 142 feet. The Kong & Halvorsen '130' 'Yecats' yacht was later destroyed in a fire but the crew and passengers all survived. See more »
After Annie/Joanna returns to the yacht with Grant and then decides she wants to go back to Oregon, she has the boat turned around to head back up the coast. Grant notices that "the boat's been turned around" when he sees land outside the port-side (left) window. If this were true, however, the land would be on the starboard (right) side of the yacht.

He's upset because he can't read.
Well he's a small child.

I watched this movie for the first time when I was 10 and still watching it to this day. The cast is excellent and the storyline is silly but you just can't help yourself laughing at all of Goldie's screw-ups or Kurt's incompetent ways of parenting. The supporting cast is great, what more can I say??, if you ever see this in the video store, it's worth renting. GO OVERBOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
